Many robots rely entirely on geometry to plan a collision-free path. However, geometric reasoning can cause autonomous machines to think that they can’t traverse through tall grass or bumpy terrain to reach their goal.  To help solve this problem, UC Berkeley researchers Greg Kahn, Pieter Abbeel, and Sergey Levine developed the Berkeley Autonomous Driving Ground…
